Dr Robert is, in a word, amazing! Not only do I leave his office feeling like a new human every time I visit, but I am out of pain and feeling equipped with the tools to heal myself as I go out into the world. His attitude is so empowering. There’s no pretense of mystery in his style, instead he always reminds me that I already have the gifts I need within myself. His accupuncture and Reiki treatments are life-changing and delivered with a humble attitude. I can’t say enough about it the quality of the treatments I experience with Robert. MM.

Dr Robert is truly the best! I have been a client of his for over 8 years and will not go any where else for my acupuncture or massages. He is a true professional, knowledgeable, incredible kind, and has an awesome spirit and outlook on life. He has relieved my shoulder pain and back pain over the years. I first began seeing Robert so he could “fix” my pain however now I see him routinely as preventive medicine. He truly heals the body, spirt and soul with magical touch! GC.

Dr Robert is a very gifted healer. I began seeing him 9 years ago. Over the years he helped me resolve many physical challenges. His holistic approach and gentle guidance helped me better understand the mind-body connection. I highly recommend Robert. DW.

Dr Robert~When I was at my very lowest point and needed to gather the “troops” around me to save my life you were one of them. Through listening, healing massage and acupuncture I discovered a place of peace and letting go as well as a level of compassion for myself that I desperately needed in order to continue being an acceptable therapist to others. I am eternally grateful. BW.

I am a regular client of Dr Robert Wallace’s since 2014.
I leave his holistic and effective treatments feeling relaxed and revived.
He is very knowledgeable about the body’s healing capacity has helped me overcome some painful physical challenges. LP.

If you’re new to acupuncture or interested in finding a new acupuncturist, I cannot recommend Dr Robert enough. I have been going to him regularly for several years now and am in excellent health. I’ve sent many of my friends and family members to him, who all have had positive experiences. AM.

I had the privilege of seeing Dr Robert Wallace for almost 2 years, and highly recommend him!
I was always very skeptical of acupuncture but got a recommendation from a close friend and decided to try it out to treat severe migraines I have had since age 8.
Within 4-6 months of regular visits, I was taking half the amount of regular medication to treat migraines. It was progress I could actually track and the pain level lessened when I had migraines. He also helped me with various other issues that popped up throughout my time in Chicago (back pain, pregnancy, sleep and stress issues, etc.). He even saw my husband when he severely injured his ankle.
Robert is one of the kindest people who truly cares and gets to know his clients. I looked forward to our appointments like I would look forward to seeing an old friend. I still use the herbs he recommends and had we not moved out of Chicago, I would still be going on a regular basis. KK.

I highly recommend seeing Dr Robert Wallace for any of your ailments. If you’re thinking of getting acupuncture, keep an open-mind, and do it! You won’t regret it. You can feel confident that Robert knows what he’s doing, and will have advice and a plan for you. Everyone’s problems are different, he will work with you to figure out what is going to work best for you and he is highly qualified to do so.
When I first went to see him, I was way over using my “rescue” inhaler for asthma, which resulted in all types of issues including headaches and sleep restlessness. I was having a lot of trouble breathing. He suggested a treatment plan he thought was best for me. I’ve had almost 20 acupuncture sessions with Robert. Between 5-10, he began including granule herbs for me to take at home 2x/day, like a tea. Shortly after, I stopped using my inhaler completely. Before I went to see him, I was using it around 6x/day, which was wrecking havoc in my life. In the last few months, I’ve used it only a couple of times. That is a huge deal ! ! !
During our sessions, I always feel very relaxed, comfortable and safe. He creates a warm and soothing atmosphere for acupuncture and includes a brief, very much needed massage therapy session. He always listens to and addresses any issues I’m having. He is a professional who cares about his patients and truly wants to help. He always includes tips and suggestions for what I can do on my own time at home to improve my health.
Seeing Robert as my doctor was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I am very happy with the results and plan to continue a holistic lifestyle indefinitely. LC.

After having trouble getting pregnant, I decided to give acupuncture a try because I heard it could help.  When I got to the office and Dr Robert started asking about what else was going on with my body, I realized that there were a lot of other things going on with my stomach and skin that I’d kind of not paid attention to.
Without a doubt much of this was caused by stress.  I started seeing Robert every week for acupuncture, some light massage, and herbal therapies.  No joke, I was pregnant two weeks later.  Within a month, my stomach issues were gone, and my skin improved dramatically…which normally doesn’t happen when you get pregnant 🙂
I recommend Robert to anyone thinking about trying alternative therapies. He’s so knowledgeable, kind, and sincerely interested in treating your whole body, mind, and spirit. DV.

I think I lucked out finding this place.
Chicago Holistic Medicine is where I first decided to try out acupuncture, despite my initial reservations of having someone stick needles in me. And after going here for nearly three years, I can’t imagine going anywhere else for this type of treatment.
Robert is definitely the guy you want to see if you’re considering trying an alternative to the standard health care system. He has helped to improve health conditions of mine that the normal cycle of pharmaceuticals and Blue Cross approved procedures has not. If you have a serious problem or even a simple cold, Robert can help accelerate the healing process.  And it doesn’t hurt that the guy genuinely cares about his patients. JF.

Dr Robert is really gifted at what he does.  I went to see him for various health issues and for the first time, I felt like someone was actually listening to the problems I was having. After a few times with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, my acid reflux problems completely went away for the first time in years.  The acupuncture really helped reduce stress which I believe was the root of a lot of my health concerns.  I went to Robert for 5 weeks straight and then tapered off, and even ended up getting pregnant after seeing him which did not seem like a coincidence.  Acupuncture even helped a bunch with my morning sickness.  I am a big believer in what he does now and can’t believe how much care he takes with his clients.  Just an overall great person! EW.

I highly recommend Dr Robert. He is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and spiritual. I have been seeing him regularly for acupuncture treatments the past few years. Before seeing Robert, I used to experience back pain regularly. But his holistic approach, integrating mind and body, has brought huge relief to my back, which in turn has helped my entire body heal. TT.

Tune-up with Dr Robert Wallace

Think I need a tune-up,
I feel it in my bones
Every time I fry an egg
my shoulder wants to groan

I’m goin’ to the NorthSide
to the acupuncture shop
My best friend Robert Wallace,
he gonna fix me up

Don’t use no big old cat scans,
don’t use no drip I.V.,
That cat will scan you head to foot,
with natural energy

Massage and acupuncture,
that keep me feelin’ fine,
Keep my body right on rhythm,
Keep my head all full of rhyme!

I’ve been going for weekly acupuncture treatments with Dr Robert. While the idea of being poked with needles did not seem particularly appealing, I found Robert to be very gentle and the process to be very therapeutic. My FAV part is that afterwards he does massage…ahhh! 🙂 One of these days he’s going to have to kick me out afterwards…or I’m kidnapping him;). I even had fun spinning the prayer wheel afterward! If you’re considering acupuncture, herbs or massage, I definitely recommend him.


Dr Robert is extremely skilled in what he does. He is a gifted acupuncturist and his massages are to die for. I feel so spoiled going to see him. After only two sessions my lower back feels much improved. Highly recommended! 


I love this place. I originally came to Dr Robert with upper back problems (mostly from lifting my daughter so often). Eventually I had him treating my Asthma and Depression as well. I did a combination of Acupuncture, Herbs, and Massage. I was a total non-believer in this kind of medicine, but the changes that resulted from my treatment were absolutely undeniable. I highly recommend this place. Robert is extremely down-to-earth and my treatment was really personalized. 


Dr Robert is a class act. He offers a solid combination of intuition and technique, with top-notch acupuncture and massage skills. Most important, he helps you take charge of your own health with respect and gentleness. I am honored to give him my highest recommendation. 


After many attempts with different doctors to try and figure out what is causing my contact dermatitis, I decided to try out alternative therapy. I went online and searched holistic medicine and came up with Chicago Holistic Medicine.

So far, I’ve only had 2 treatments and unfortunately I am going to have to stop for a while due to the cost not being covered on my insurance.

However, the 2 treatments I have had were really great. The acupuncture paired with the herbs seemed to help my condition. Though, I still don’t know what is actually causing it, I feel that for now at lease I am in a better state.

I hope to go back and have more treatments, but my wallet is telling me I have to wait!


A couple of years ago, I first started a weekly treatment with Robert due to my chronic neck and shoulder pain, which involved deep tissue massage, acupuncture, and herbs. A month later, the weekly session became every other week session, then soon once a month just maintenance session.
Also, I had a medical issue, which involved immune system. Again after 4 months of seeing him (normally people takes 1yr or sometimes even longer to recover from it), I was able to fully recover from the condition. My doctor was surprised!
I highly and confidently recommend Dr. Wallace to anyone who is in need of any medical (physical/emotional) treatment. 


I highly recommend Dr Robert for acupuncture and massage! I have received both acupuncture and massage from Robert. I was impressed with Robert’s skills of listening; both to what I had to say verbally but more importantly his expertness at hearing what my body needed for treatment. Robert is an insightful and caring healer!

He is also a gifted massage therapist. I highly suggest a visit to
Chicago Holistic Medicine 


Robert provided the best massage I’ve ever experienced. He was able to work on every muscle, including my stomach muscles, which I’ve never had massaged before. My tight muscles were relaxed, as was I. I would definitely recommend Robert if you would like an amazing, thorough, and relaxing massage. 


Dr Robert is an incredible healer. I have come to him with high stress levels, skin problems, and digestive problems. He did an hour treatment of acupuncture and then prescribed me some herbs to take during the week. After two weeks of treatment, stress levels reduced: I noticed myself much calmer and comfortable in my own self, my skin problems improved significantly better then when I was using ‘proactiv or neutrogena products’, and I noticed my digestion improved…I could not believe that oriental medicine and acupuncture could do miracles. I do now. What a blessing to have found this clinic and a blessing to have Robert as my holistic medicine doctor!!!


The most caring as well as skilled massage therapist, whose work has helped me to maintain health and well-being. I felt listened to, respected, and honored; this was truly a holistic experience, filled with warmth and good humor––a truly great massage. I also added acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat my asthma––a powerful healing combination


Dr Robert is professional, incredibly knowledgable, and has a wonderful bedside manner. He took time to work with me as an individual, and within six weeks, I was feeling so much better. I am asthmatic, and also suffer from mild depression/anxiety. He used a combination of herbs and accupuncture to address these issues. I also went to him for massage (I have a toddler, so my neck was always horribly cramped), he sorted me right out. I would recommend him to anyone.


I typically only give reviews when it’s either a really good experience or a really bad one, so in the case of Chicago Holistic Medicine, I am pleased to be able to give two big thumbs up. I’ve had massages in places from the Four Seasons to The Phoenician in AZ & while I will continue to get those massages as a nice component of a getaway, while in Chicago, CHM will be my go-to place. For those of you that might be uncomfortable getting a massage (ie. guys) or might feel out of place in an upitty spa, CHM is the perfect place to go. It’s low-key, relaxed simple neighbohood vibe, combined with Robert’s mellow, relaxing demeaner will put you at ease & the extremely fair pricing will make your wallet as happy as your back, neck, etc. as you walk out the door. For the typically spa-going folks, I would recommend CHM as your place to go when you’d like to increase your massage frequency w/o it becoming a second car payment in your budget. Two other positives about Robert is his intake procedure & his accupunture skills. He always takes the time to zero in on what your most pressing issues are & recommend the best personalized treatment. I would also put his accupunture skills in line w/ the Chinese practitioner w/ 30+ yrs experience where I had been going. I was as hesitant to get accupuncture as anyone, but in the right hands you often don’t even feel a pin prick. So if Robert recommends it as part of your treatment, make a leap of faith &/or man-up & you will be the better for it! 


I had the privilege of first meeting Robert at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. His even temperment and great powers of observation are reflected in his work. He helped me after I had dislocated my shoulder for which I was very grateful. He also does a great job of integrating his massage therapy techniques with the acupuncture and herbs. Go Robert!


Every time I leave Robert’s office, I feel like I am floating. I have been seeing Robert for acupuncture and massage for almost a year now for chronic daily headaches and occasional migraines. I keep going back because I love how I am feeling through his help and my personal work, mostly for maintenance. The acupuncture is so relaxing and most sessions I can actually feel the energy releasing and moving in different parts of my body. His massage skills are right on point. Because he has a plethora of trainings, he is able to utilize all of them to get the exact point of tension and with the correct pressure there is immediate relief. Robert is patient and easy to talk to; I feel very comfortable opening up to him. Try it out, go for one session and let the healing begin! Life is good! 


My experience with Dr Robert of Chicago Holistic Medicine was excellent. Robert is very personable and very professional, which made me comfortable and relaxed from the start. He is also a very well-qualified and talented massage therapist. I was looking for a massage therapist that I could rely on to meet my needs for relaxation and stress management and I found it in Robert. I had the best massage experience and I would recommend him to anyone. 


A session with Dr Robert always starts with talking about how my mind, body, and sprit are doing. He pays full attention to me. I have been seeing him for a long time for many reasons, such as dance injury, chronical pain on my shoulders, neck, and knees…
I enjoy being treated by him so much. His massage is “right on”, in terms of targeting my problem areas, his accupunture is effective…
Most of all, I feel sooooo relaxed and comfortable, whenever I visit Robert. It makes my day! Strongly recommend him to anyone!
